Welcome to

My Signature
Bridal Seamstress Services

You’ve found your dream dress. Let’s make it perfect!

I offer a wide range of services to support you, simply take a look and then reach out to me for a personalised quote.

I can’t wait to meet you and your gown.



As The Wedding Dress Surgeon, I offer alterations to your already-purchased gown. I’ll take that beautiful, perfectly-selected bridal dress and fit it to you, so you can truly enjoy your special day. I can offer you a bespoke estimate after we’ve been in touch, after I’ve seen photos of the gown and when I know the designer. 

Typically, the most frequently required alterations cost £250 – £450



I offer a range of affordable, made-to-order veils. I have a selection of colours and lengths for you to choose from to perfectly compliment your gown. Alternatively, I offer a bespoke veil-making service with unique embellishments or matching lace( for example) to your gown.  There are some exciting new techniques and designs in store for 2023, so do follow my social media channels to keep up to date. 

Made-to-order veils start from £35, but are typically £75 – £250

Bespoke veils start from £100, but are typically £250 – £700


hoops & support

It’s so important to wear the right foundation garments for your fittings to be carried out correctly and to obtain the best results. The right hoop will help support the shape of your gown and allow me to pin the hem perfectly.

If you did not choose a hoop at time of purchase with your gown, I can advise you. I have a sample range to try and your own can then can be delivered in time for your second fitting.  


shrugs & stoles

Winter cover ups can sometimes be essential. I have a range of beautiful, ready-to-order knitted or fabric stoles, shrugs and jackets. These have a four-week turnaround so can be delivered in time for your second fitting. I also offer bespoke cover-ups to match your gown. Typically, fabric for these needs to be ordered, so please let me know at your first fitting if you’re likely to need one. The possibilities really are endless with bespoke items, so do request a quote for your ideas. 

Ready to order items start from £35, but are typically £55 – £100

Bespoke prices start from £125, but are typically £250 – £750 


dress cleaning

Cleaning and preserving your wedding dress should ideally be considered before you wear it.  I offer a wedding dress cleaning service for £95 through a third party, with a surcharge for very soiled gowns. I then recommend (if you’re keeping your gown) to preserve it in a box from The Empty Box Company.

You can order these in a range of sizes and finishes, alternatively you can make your selection and leave it for me to order so that I can pack your garment once cleaned, steamed and aired. 

I don’t think she’ll know just how amazing it made me feel to put my dress on after alterations

I Highly recommend Nikki, my dress was far too long and didn’t  fit me snug, and given the nature of my dress it NEEDED to fit me perfectly.  Nikki did exactly that, I don’t think she’ll know just how amazing it made me feel to put my dress on after alterations and for it to finally fit me like it was made for me, just incredible! Nikki also recommended how to tie up the train without disrupting the dress, made sure the horsehair sat at the perfect length and gave us great advice.  Thank you so much! – Kayleigh
